Quilting and patchwork courses, classes and workshops taught all over the UK. Quilting and patchwork techniques will enable you to make beautiful bed-spreads and covers. Quilts are often made to represent rites of passage such as birth or marriage and are sometimes created by groups of people working together on a joint project bringing a real sense of community and significance to the finished piece. Let your creativity run riot and make something absolutely unique. Join one of our quilting or patchwork courses or workshops to learn this traditional yet modern and most popular craft.
You can bring your project that you are working on along with you or I can sort out some ideas for you depending on your interest. I can help with dressmaking, furnishings or quilting. I do not take more than three people per session so you get very individual tuition.
